Today is the twelfth and last day of this Christmas season. But, that does not mean we must leave Christmas utterly behind. The one who was born on Christmas all those years ago is alive and comes to us every day binding heart to heart. And it remains true every day of the year that “where meek souls will receive Him still, the dear Christ enters in.”
He who by a mother's love
Made the wandering world his own,
Every year comes from above,
Comes the parted to atone,
Binding Earth to the Father's throne.
Nay, thou comest every day!
No, thou never didst depart!
Never hour hast been away!
Always with us, Lord, thou art,
Binding, binding heart to heart!
